Thank you Ellie
I've never had a horse that's needed a grackle but my godmother is saddler and has been apart of recent studies for micklem bridles and they do avoid all the pressure points so good for a sensitive horse
A micklem has no pressure points therefore very comfortable for the horse as it works with their facial structure. A grackle on the hand stops the horse from crossing its jaw and helps with control of the horse brakes etc.
